It isn't easy traveling in such close quarters with a small group. I've been thinking of why we even had more fun on the second sail. Sure it helped that we already knew the pace, routine and rigor. Sea-sickness was just a gag. Global warming blessed us with warm weather. We had a bigger boat hence a smoother sail.
But I truly believe that our formula worked because our chemistry worked: love is all you need! And if you triple that formula over 2 weeks, well that's just makes for one helluva trip. As first mate Bob adds, "Well, that plus a stiff breeze off the beam, fair skies above, following seas and a sense of adventure. On to the next one!"
